TripADeal, founded by Byron Bay locals Norm Black and Richard Johnston in 2011, has clocked average revenue growth of 401.7 per cent for the last three financial years to top The Australian Financial Review's Fast 100 list in 2016, all while allowing staff to wear thongs to work.

The idea for TripADeal was conceived in 2010, the pair started with Richard working in his laundry in Bali and Norm from an office in Byron Bay. Little did they know that this plan would turn them into multi-millionaires and change the face of Australia’s travel industry.
